The HMS Agamemnon was launched in 1781 as 64-gun third-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy. She was Admiral Nelson's favourite ship, who served as Agamemnon's captain in the years 1793 - 1796. Later on the ship took part in the 1801 Battle of Copenhagen and in the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805. In 1809 she was wrecked after running aground in the mouth of the Rio de la Plata.
The wreck of the Agamemnon has been
located in 1993, and one of her cannons and some other artifacts have been recovered.
